In addition to Mesotherapy, Dr. Jeffrey Schorr also specializes in the
treatment of veins, or Sclerotherapy.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is generally the treatment of choice for Spider
veins are tiny dilated blood vessels seen in the skin usually on the face
and legs. These veins are located just below the surface of the skin and
often appear red, blue or purple in color.
When sclerotherapy is performed, a solution is injected into the vein.
The injected vein shrinks, closes off and gradually disappears. The solution
used is safe with few allergic reactions reported. No anesthetic is utilized
and there is little to no downtime.
What causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins are
formed when veins become dilated and swollen from abnormal blood flow.
Pregnancy and hormonal variations may stimulate their appearance. Spider
veins are more common in women but do occur in men as well.
Dr. Schorr offers this treatment at both Mesotherapie&Estetik and the Greenwich
Vein Center. Following your consultation, Dr. Schorr will map out a treatment
plan which will include a series of 30 minute sessions. The number of sessions
required is based on the severity of the condition. Prices are available upon
